This is the best Mexican food I've ever had. The food is fresh, the prices are cheap, and the service very friendly and quick. It was a fun-filled atmosphere, but would work for a family trip. Loved it!!!

Stopped in for after dinner drinks and dessert. We had to walk into the restaurant, by the bar area to find the hostess. We informed her that we were just going to have drinks and dessert and she said, there's the bar. We checked out the bar area and there weren't any open seats. Looking around the restaurant though, there... More

A decent Texican place right in Boston Commons! Lively and simple ambience - great place to hang out. Nice fajitas, tortillas and spicy salsa!

Found this while walking around Boston on a day trip. Now im not from the south, so by no means have I had the "greatest" Mexican/Southwestern meal in the US, but even in NJ where I'm from, I've had better. The food here is not bad by any means, but its nothing spectacular. While in Boston, I'm sure you can... More

This place was packed when I arrived but luckily a couple at the bar were just leaving, so I ended up with a prime spot aat the bar. Ideal for watching the sport (World Cup) on the TVs. Bar service was excellent and very friendly. Nice selection of beers (I didn't try the 'ritas, but plenty of other folks did).... More

We had a great meal here, tasty food, good service and a nice atmosphere. We all ordered different meals and every one was excellent. Nice that a good helping of guacamole comes with most meals for no extra charge. The price was great too. Would come back here again if we are ever in town again

We stopped there hubby and I for a late dinner. We ordered take out and our food was ready in about 10 mins! I took the tostada salad with steak and it was very tasty. It came in a huge bowl! Overall, the meal was good and cheap!

I met a friend and former co-worker there with my wife and got there at 7. We closed the place by talking. My Wife and friend ordered some 'ritas and both commented how strong they were. The friend ordered a second one and it was a little weaker but his third was so strong he couldn't finish it. It was... More

Tucked away off the Common is this little find. We found it full of locals, good sign! And it was worth the trip in- great margaritas, outstanding wings, and perfect fajitas. The guacamole was fesh and delicious, so were the chips! Price was less than everything around. Go and enjoy!

Stopped by at 4:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon after seeing a show at Majestic Theater. No wait at this hour, plenty of seating available up near front windows or down in dimmer main part of the restaurant. Service was quick and adequate, but not overly friendly and no followup. But the draft beers and shrimp fajitas for two were... More
